Moral Dilemmas in Documentary Photography with Danny Teitelbaum ’56

12/8/2022, 7:00 PMVIRTUAL

We live in a world surrounded by images. Television, newspapers, billboards, cell phones, your computer, and many other incidental sources bombard you with pictures constantly. Most of those images are of little consequence. Some however are deeply affecting and draw a visceral response from the viewer. Have you ever wondered why a photographer took an image, why the television presenter chose to show it, or why the newspaper put it on the front page? Join Danny Teitelbaum ’56, a photographer for more than 70 years, as he shares photos and discusses the photographer’s view of why the image was taken and what the response to it has been. 

Prior to the discussion, you may want to read The Painter of Battles by Arturo Perez Reverte about the interaction between a war photographer and a subject whom he photographed in a compromising position. The substance of the book is the consequence of this interaction. The book is available on Amazon in hardcover, paperback, and on kindle.
